Thyme Seller / Fragments of a Lost Palestine
Thyme Seller by Taha Awadallah
Thyme Seller portrays the daily life of the director's mother—a Palestinian woman from the Jerusalem area who plants and collects thyme on her land near the pre-1967 Green Line in order to sell it for a living. Every day, she collects the thyme and walks through the streets of Beit Jala, knocking on doors one after the other, trying to sell the herb to support her family. This moving portrait is new director Taha Awadallah's graduation project: "It's the least I can do to reward my mother."
Fragments of a Lost Palestine
Art comes from the roots. Fragments of a Lost Palestine is a subjective journey, shot as fragmented memories of the director's country of birth, Palestine, as remembered throughout years in exile. The film is above all an encounter with people—intellectuals, peasants, workers, and the director's niece as she grows.
